        At this stage, "blockchain" has become a high-frequency term at science and technology summits, and its popularity is no less than "o2o" in the mobile Internet era. At present, the total amount of investment in blockchain related startups has reached nearly $1.8 billion. This underlying technology of bitcoin is believed to be the first to subvert the financial industry in the future, and daily payment, stock trading and other behaviors will undergo profound changes. The rapid development of technology has promoted entrepreneurship in related fields. According to the statistics of sina science and technology, the venture capital attracted by the blockchain field increased from US $2 million in 2012 to US $469 million in 2015, an increase of more than 200 times.
 
        The latest data released by venturescanner shows that up to now, the total financing of blockchain start-ups is about US $1.79 billion. Sina science and technology found that there are about 862 blockchain startups, mainly distributed in 73 countries in the world. Among them, the United States is the largest, accounting for about 40%; Britain followed, accounting for 16.7%; China ranks fourth, accounting for 3.2%. According to this calculation, there are about 27 blockchain startups in China. According to the venture capital data released by venturescanner, about 205 venture capital institutions have invested in startups in bitcoin and blockchain.
 
        These startups mainly focus on smart contracts, identity certificates and blockchain infrastructure. According to incomplete statistics of sina science and technology, since 2016, only 10 domestic blockchain startups have obtained financing. Among them, 30% of the companies are engaged in the business related to network mutual assistance, while the rest are mostly at the conceptual stage and have not yet launched mature products. Among them, 7 have obtained angel rounds of financing, which indicates that most of the investments are still at an early stage; There are few large venture capital institutions to further sort out investors. "There is a core reason why there are few domestic blockchain application projects at present. People who understand technology do not understand the segmentation industry at all, and they still stay in the proof of concept. Entrepreneurs who really have experience and resources in the segmentation industry do not understand the new technology of blockchain at all, and the cross-border talents must be Fengmao Lingjiao," industry insiders said to Sina Technology.
 
        Similarly, China is another blockchain investment institution & mdash& mdash; Wanxiang blockchain fund also pays more attention to foreign start-ups. Xiao Feng, vice chairman of Wanxiang holdings, once disclosed that up to now, Wanxiang blockchain fund has invested in 23 startups worldwide, of which only one domestic company has been invested. Compared with domestic financing, foreign financing is more evenly distributed. Financing cases are mainly concentrated in round a and round B, but round C and above also account for 23%. Take circle (a payment company applying blockchain technology in the United States) as an example. After the completion of round D financing in June this year, the accumulated financing amount of the company reached US $136 million.
 
        From the perspective of the invested enterprises, the digital currency field still accounts for a large proportion. In addition, blockchain related projects such as intelligent securities trading, digital copyright protection, and side chain are increasingly favored by investment institutions. A report released at the world economic forum not long ago can be said to be the strongest endorsement of blockchain technology so far. Giancarlo & middot, director of financial services industry of the world economic forum; Bruno said in the statement of the report: "blockchain technology is no longer the marginal field of the financial industry, but will occupy the core position.". The financial industry did not look at bitcoin before, believing that this technology breeds crime.
 
        But now, as the most popular fintech technology, blockchain is gradually becoming the mainstream. The above report estimates that about 80% of the world's banks will start blockchain related projects next year. At present, major financial institutions around the world are intensively investing in the research of blockchain technology and participating in the investment of blockchain projects, including Nasdaq, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, UBS and HSBC. The latest news also confirms that several large central banks are also stepping up the integration of blockchain technology with the infrastructure of traditional financial institutions to change their payment, trading and settlement methods. It is reported that the average daily transaction volume of the largest blockchain bitcoin network is only more than 200000, and even one transaction was confirmed after more than ten hours.
 
        In addition to bitcoin itself, there are few blockchain technologies that can be actually applied. This also raises some questions: is blockchain really an innovative project that can be widely used?. Yao Yudong, director of the Financial Research Institute of the people's Bank of China, has also openly expressed his concern. In his opinion, blockchain is easy to cause overheating. "Internet finance has not been fully implemented, including the ongoing Internet Finance rectification work. Suddenly blockchain is so hot, is there any suspicion of foam?". The existing virtual currency has been facing serious security problems. As one of the largest bitcoin exchanges in the world, bitfinex recently had $60 million worth of bitcoin stolen. There were many similar cases issued by bitcoin exchanges before.
 
        Yao Qian, deputy director of the science and Technology Department of the people's Bank of China, said that although the security of the blockchain itself has been tested for many years, it still needs to continue to pay attention. The blockchain does not solve all security problems. Blind trust in the blockchain may lead to serious consequences, such as the exploitation of smart contract vulnerabilities and the loss of digital assets. There are many policies and regulations on banking, payment, clearing, and various business areas related to stocks and insurance products. In these areas, the data format and business process changed due to the introduction of blockchain need to be adjusted. Some of them need the authorization of the regulatory authorities before they can be implemented.
 
        "The first concern is still risk and regulation. If the risk and regulation are not resolved, blockchain technology cannot be applied in a large area, and the most is pilot." Wu xuchuan, Secretary General of the Internet Finance Research Center of the Financial Research Institute of the central bank, said so. The new book "Internet financial risk and security governance" co authored by Professor Yang Dong, vice president of the Law School of Renmin University, and his student Wen Chenggong will be published in the near future. This book comprehensively and deeply explains the latest regulatory measures and special rectification requirements of Internet finance, explains the legal logic and implementation path of Internet financial risk and security governance, and analyzes third-party payment, virtual currency, Internet finance, P2P network lending, Internet consumer finance Internet supply chain finance, Internet finance business of small loan companies, equity crowdfunding, Internet insurance and other typical models of Internet finance are how to innovate and develop legally and legally.
 
        In addition, the book also analyzes the supervision of Internet financial advertising, the criminal law of Internet finance, and how to apply innovative technologies such as big data and blockchain to Internet financial risk and security governance. Please continue to pay attention to the relevant introduction pushed by the crowdfunding Finance Research Institute!.
